  • Boys golf lose to Shelby

    Young players led another Henry County golf team last week. This time, on Aug. 27, fifth-grader Alex Hadden led the team with a 48, as the boys’ golf team fell to Shelby County 186-217.

    Other performances on the team include 8th grader Dillon Allen and fifth grader Isaac Klempner, who each shot 51; freshman Connor Lyons shot 67. Also competing but not figuring in the scoring were Shayne Strong who shot 70 and Tyler Tingle who shot 72.

  • Lady Cats rely on youngsters,...

    An already young Lady Cats golf team was even younger last week as its oldest player sat out a home match against Oldham County.

    Coach Willie Peyton decided to have MacKenzie Peyton, his best and oldest player, sit out the home match against Oldham County in order to allow her to focus on a big tournament coming up this weekend. He also wanted to be able to give another of his young players the opportunity to score in a varsity match.

    The move paid off as the Lady Cats pulled out a 219-222 victory over Oldham County at the Henry County Country Club.

  • Lady Cats get key district win

    The Henry County Lady Cats are getting the wins when they matter the most: in district games.

    The team’s second win of the season came in their second district game of the season against Carroll County on Tuesday, Aug. 21.  They then defeated Owen County last Thursday.

    The Lady Cats are 0-4 in non-district play. The 3-0 record in district play helps the Cats toward a better seed when the district tournament rolls around at the end of the season.

  • Warriors Fall in Class A, bounce...

    Like many small teams across the state, the Eminence Warriors volleyball team had dreams of winning the All “A” Classic regional tournament.

    But that dream came to a halt Saturday afternoon when the Warriors ran into the buzz-saw that is Walton-Verona.

    The Warriors faced the Bearcats in the semifinal of their Class A region, but Walton put up a 12-3 run to finish what had been a close game, winning 25-15.

  • A tale of two halves

    Cats win after tightening up kickoff coverage

    It was the best of halves, it was the worst of halves.
    All 51 points in the Cats 27-24 win over Walton Verona came in the first half; and most of those came in the first quarter.
    It was a game in which the Wildcats found themselves playing catch up in the first half against Walton-Verona and kickoff coverage was a glaring weakness.

  • Road Warriors win again


    The Eminence High School Warriors may want to change their name to honor the Mel Gibson film series of the 1980’s. The Road Warriors have won 2 in a row on the road and will play in Cincinnati tomorrow against Riverview High School. They will finally come home to play on Sept. 14.
    For now though, the road is just fine as Eminence defeated the Shawnee Golden Eagles 40-15 Friday in Louisville to follow up the trip to Caverna where they won 22-0.
